MR Lounge Chair1931 - 1931
Like the MR Chair, the MR Lounge Chair features tubular stainless steel and a cantilever frame. Mies began with the iron rocking chairs that were the standard in 19th century Europe. He then injected them with modern materials and a minimalist aesthetic. This was another instance in which the architect reused a conventional, classic form to produce a work of sheer innovation. The MR Lounge exists as a chaise lounge, an armchair, an armless chair, and an adjustable chaise lounge.
